Persons without a valid study right to a Finnish university have preference to this course.

Course content: Security models and terminology, authentication, access control, software security, cryptography, network security, threat analysis, examples of advanced security technologies, privacy, security policies and regulation.

After taking the course, you are familiar with the key concepts and abstractions of information security and understand the purpose, function and weaknesses of several security technologies. You are able to model threats and analyse the security of a system critically, from the viewpoint of an attacker. Moreover, you can identify common security flaws in software and apply principles of secure programming.

The course organised in spring is for self-study with recorded lectures, online exercises, and a final exam on Otaniemi campus. There will be no teaching staff to support learning. The regular course version will run again in autumn.
